Tagg Romney, the eldest son of former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, is weighing a bid for the Senate seat just vacated by Secretary of State John Kerry, the Boston Herald is reporting.

The story follows a report earlier in the weekend that top Republicans in the state had approached both the former governor and his wife, Ann Romney, about the possibility of seeking the seat. According to the Herald, state Republicans believe the Romney’s name recognition and wealth could help them compete in the heavily Democratic state.

On Friday, former Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) surprised many in the state, announcing he would not seek the open Senate seat. Brown was elected in 2010 in a special election to fill the seat of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) but subsequently lost re-election to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). Had he opted to run, it would have been Brown’s third Senate race in just four years.
